Northcott Church, on a grassy patch at the edge of a southwest Anderson County soybean field, will celebrate its 100th birthday Sunday. Activities will begin with morning services and run well into the afternoon.

The church began when a young woman named Jennie Morton began preaching and holding Sunday school classes in 1911.

Northcott was then a small farming community served by a railroad and general store, with several houses and Sunnyside School.
